I do not think i have half the energy Coco has in her… and 10 year old means 70 in human years… She must have joined a gym, drunk from the fountain of youth and/or have incredible healthy genes. Coco is a beautiful and elegant golden gal, owned since very early puppy hood, remarkably well cared for and now with us as her family moved to a place not allowing dogs. She comes with great recommendations, the dearest being that she is so lovable… Coco lived and played with children and adults as well as a small dog, was welcoming of strangers, house trained and wee wee pads trained , free of handling issues and quite friendly, affectionate and mellow. In a nut shell, she was a wonderful family dog… Coco seems to be all what her former masters say about her. She is lively and friendly, sociable with people and dogs alike(she play bows and wags her tail to her peers in the yard). She is a little bit anxious which is quite understandable for a family dog but being a good pooch, she will likely fall quickly back on her four with the help of staff and volunteers. As her owners warned us…Coco is a sweet gal who loves to come on the lap, kiss and be kissed and also give standing hugs. She is such a pleasure to spend time with and a regal for the eyes. Come and meet our lovely dame here at the Manhattan Care Center and take her home as your new four legged best friend..
